This powerpoint includes 28 literary terms that are used in upper elementary school through middle school or high school. The words are in alphabetical order for easier access with the exception of the five words included in the definition of plot; those are listed after plot. Each word has 1 - 6 non-linguistic representations (most even have sentence examples). Each slide has a white background with colored pictures for easy printing. Words can be printed and used in centers (as reminders or vocabulary) or used for a word wall. I created the terms in powerpoint so that they can also be transfered to other powerpoints, possibly as an introduction slide to the term being taught.
